I count it as a privilege to provide Pathways of Hope (formerly known as Fullerton Interfaith Emergency Service) with this letter as support.
As one of the county's strongest homeless advocates, HomeAid has not only been instrumental in building buildings to house its homeless neighbors, but counts it a privilege to have played a part in expanding the capacity of its service provider partners. A sterling example of this synergy has been the partnership of HomeAid Orange County with Pathways of Hope as a united force working together to change lives.
HomeAid Orange County has worked with Fullerton Interfaith Emergency Service on two prior developments adding to their capacity to serve homeless families. HomeAid Orange County is currently involved in the development of 8 units for Fullerton Interfaith Emergency Service that will be under construction in the next few months. In addition, HomeAid is assisting in the rehabilitation of a newly acquired 10 unit apartment building in the City of Anaheim.
We have seen that each time HomeAid has invested in Pathways of Hope that the organization has grown and has had a greater impact in the community. The vision and purpose of Pathways of Hope is strong and effective and we have been honored to have been a part of the story.
In looking back over the nearly 20 years of our partnership, we are pleased in the knowledge that in some measure HomeAid has had a significant role in assisting Mercy House with its efforts to end the cycle of homelessness for those who enter their system of care.
